I have dedicated my career to providing the highest quality defense to individuals and corporations against all manner of complex criminal allegations. My mission is to defend and protect my clients, to be their ally and champion, and to fight on their behalf through creative and zealous advocacy.
I’ve been practicing criminal defense for more than 30 years and am honored to hold the highest professional ratings: I am a member of the International Society of Barristers, hold the AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell (top rating in skill and ethics) and have been selected to Top 50 Oregon Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America® for more than a decade.
Professional achievements aside, what I am truly proud of is my ability to listen carefully to the client and articulate information they would otherwise be unable to present on their own behalf. It means mastering the rules of evidence and being able to argue for my clients’ best interests in ways that are new, innovative, and successful.
